Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year at SAP!
Room 1303 works hard during Reader's and Writer's Workshops, having book clubs, learning lots with Everyday Math, researching different topics and building our community together. We really love to read and celebrate this by having three Saint Anthony Park Saints Read family gatherings during the year. Come on in any time!
I'm starting my 21st year with St. Paul Public Schools and am deeply committed to public education. I have taught 8th grade, 5th grade and just love the 2nd graders I'm lucky enough to work with here at St. Anthony Park. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, I'm still a Wildcats Basketball fan, and tend to get a little Mad in March as the college tournament time rolls around. Despite the winters, I have deep roots in St. Paul and am happy to be raising my young family here in the Twin Cities. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
Ms. Maddie Weiler will be with us all year as she earns her Master's degree at the U of M - we are so fortunate to have her experience and care to enrich our learning!
